Hints to Travelers
`Hints to Travelers` served as the Royal Geographical Societies unofficial bible and was used by late 19th and early 20th century British explorers such as Shackleton, Scott, Burton, Col. Perry Fawcett and other legends who carried it into the field as a practical state of the art manual of gentlemanly exploration. Indiana Jones no doubt has his own copy too. Don't leave home without it!
Be sure to also see 'Art of Travel' which was also published by the RGS but is less technical and more entertaining.
